Re: College must make people STUPID....

Yes, College is a place where evil is held up as good and good is called racist. Professors should only be allowed to hold tenure for 5 years. After that, they should be required to go get a real world job.

Re: dumb phones

Lt Bunny Rabbit Buennemeyer would place his compass on his 1911 for stability. He was always lost. He was also the one who was talked into adding canopy lights to his parachute. We also convinced him to requisition combat grade acetate to overlay his map. Gullible was not a strong enough word for him.
